            The likelihood of women and men in the U.S. developing some form of cancer in their lifetime is astounding. In the U.S., one in three women and one in two men are likely to develop some form of cancer in their lifetime. Regular cancer screenings are important for early detection and successful treatment. Make it a point to obtain regular cancer screenings for yourself and remind your family members to do the same. 

 

            The Onondaga County Cancer Services Program Partnership (CSP) provides breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screening services to qualified women and men at private health care provider offices and at CSP program sites throughout the city of Syracuse and Onondaga County.
